Lane Series: Michelle Cann
Winner of the 2022 Sphinx Organization Medal of Excellence, Michelle Cann made her orchestral debut at age fourteen and has since performed with numerous ensembles and appeared in chamber and solo recitals throughout the U.S., China, and South Korea. A champion of American classical composer and pianist Florence Price, Cann served as the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra¿s MAC Music Innovator in 2019 in recognition of her role as an African-American classical musician who embodies artistry, innovation, and a commitment to education and community engagement. She performed the premiere of Price¿s Concerto in One Movement in 2016 with New York City¿s The Dream Unfinished Orchestra and in 2021 with The Philadelphia Orchestra. Currently, she holds the inaugural Eleanor Sokoloff Chair in Piano Studies at the Curtis Institute of Music and also is the artist in residence at Pianofest in the Hamptons.
